)-- SleepSafe Drivers, as one of the nations leading OSA solutions in the transportation industry and other high-risk related jobs, was once again chosen to discuss sleep apnea and answer industry specific questions related to OSA and its effects on drivers. The National Tank Truck Carriers invited SleepSafe Drivers’ SVP of Operations, Adrian Knight, RRT to participate in their Safety and Security Council meeting.
Mr. Knight will cover the following topics:
Basic Facts: Sleep Apnea and Transportation
Diagnosis & Treatment of Sleep Apnea
Health Care & Operational Savings
Goals of an OSA Program for your Fleet
Sleep “Apathy” is bad for business
“We are very excited to speak to this prestigious group about this health epidemic that affects millions of Americans,” said Dr. Alan Lankford, Chief Scientific Officer at SleepSafe Drivers. “Safety within the transportation industry has been placed in the national media spotlight and it’s important to share information about ways to enhance the health and livelihood of drivers and that industry as a whole. There are viable sleep apnea programs at their fingertips. It’s time that the condition be destygmatized.”
A patient-focused education program on sleep-disordered breathing can drive improved health-care outcomes while reducing medical expenses. Not only does treatment have an immediate positive effect on the sleep apnea sufferer, in one two-year study, by using the SleepSafe Driver Program, JB Hunt documented: 53% reduction in accidents, 55% reduction in hard braking and 56% reduction in medical costs.
The presentation will be on June 11th at 2:45pm at Hotel Monteleone, New Orleans LA.
